New Clone Wars game ties into Star Wars series canon

Star Wars The Clone Wars Republic Heroes adds to the animated series' backstory.If you're a fan of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and you want to know what happened between Season One and the now-running Season Two, you're going to need a video game system.

The story in the new game, Star Wars: The Clone Wars - "Republic Heroes" bridges the gap between the show's first two runs, as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and their loyal Clone Trooper comrades take on a new Separatist enemy packing a freshly polished doomsday weapon.

Available for PS3, Nintendo Wii or Xbox 360, "Republic Heroes" lets you play as a Jedi Knight or as a Clone Trooper -- depending on where you are in the game and what choices you make as a player.

Team play is the order of the day as you and a friend (or you and the computer) take on the evil Separatist Army of Battle Droids together. The game's strong A.I. means your would-be computer ally is a genuine help as you blast and slash your way through the levels. Along the way, as the game story (considered) Clone Wars and Star Wars canon, unfolds, you take on Count Dooku, Cad Bane, Aurra Sing, Asajj Ventress and few new crooked faces.

Is the game any good? Since I don't think adults are fit to answer such questions in the case of a Star Wars game, I left it to my 5-year-old Godson to decide. Since we needed a crowbar to get him away from the PS3 long enough to get some rotisserie chicken down his excited gullet, I think it's safe to assume "Republic Heroes" will more than satisfy any fans of the Cartoon Network series.

I'm sure a comic will come out to fill it in so don't need to play the game.

You let a 5 year old play this game? My son is 6 and i wouldn't let him play a violent game like this... so yes an adult (or at least a teen) should review this game.

So in order to find out what happened between the movies Episode 2 and 3, I need to watch The Clone Wars TV show? Then in order to find out what happened between seasons 1 and 2 of that show, I need to play the video game?
